Indeed. Im fascinated by some of the interviews with the Blue Staters
from the effected areas. They obviously have had life far far too easy
and have little common sense. Damned little survival instinct.
Here in Alabamastan in 2011 we had a flock of tornadoes come through and
tear the place up. People started calling into the Conservative
talk radio shows offering to help anyone in need. It took off with
good neighbors, businesses and churches springing into action before
any government agencies even woke up. People from up North sent help
and donations too but I sort of doubt it was from the types who are
looting and complaining about the government not helping. The evil,
selfish, rich Conservatives used the radio talk shows as a defacto
clearing house to organize and get assistance to those in need. The
urban stations were busy telling their listeners where to call or go
to get government help. It was an amazing real life demonstration of
the differences in culture and mindset of the people. The circus got
good when FEMA showed up handing out checks and food stamps. ^_^
I worked with a few outreach groups doing IT work (pro bono) there are a lot
of business that donate stale dated food. Which is still good but taste
like sh*t. What most don't know is each and every one takes the full MSRP
off their taxes as a charitable donation. This is not supposition as we
would get the IRS in the office every so often to check on the donation.
The folks offering help didn't do it for a tax break, they and the
companies like tree trimming crews volunteered their time. I'm disabled
somewhat so I couldn't join the big help party but I was able to help
my immediate neighbors and give rides to folks who ran out of gas or
needed to get somewhere. I remember the event because I was in the
hospital with pneumonia when the storms and tornadoes hit. O_o
And if it doesn't fit these two qualities, paint it OD green.

The drill sergeant barked at the recruits, "If it moves fuck it, if it
sits still, paint it!" ^_^
Following Katrina some food stores (Wal Mart) told folk to take what they
needed/could use. Down side on the can goods ... no labels.
A few in the media and a lot of the far right claimed it was 'looting'.
Friends who are in the insurance adjusting business mentioned that much of
their looting claims came from merchants that were flooded out. Odd
We had food factories that sold boxes of damaged cans like that. You
knew it was canned fruit, but it was unknon until you opened it.
Unfortunately, not too many people tolerated that method as a choice for
As I said many of the claims for looting were from merchants that were also
flooded. Funny but some only had looting on the first floors but none on
the second ... that was unless the water was really high.
And, the NYC refugees and homeless aren't likely
to have a bleach solution to kill the baterial.
Baterial? Must be funetic spelling.

Because baterial is in all the nooks and crannies of the jar lids.
Most of the jars I see these days have a plastic strip and a foil seal
hot/ultrasonically welded to the top of the jar. Personally, I would
just wash out the tops with soap and water. The foil/plastic seal should
keep contamination out of the food. Of course, most of the jars I've
seen with the seal are the unbreakable plastic jars but I doubt I would
have a problem with the glass jars. The plastic that you must peel off
around the glass jar lids seem to be capable of keeping contaminates out
from under the lids. ^_^

Personally, you can do that, but a business must dump stuff considered
contaminated. Flood, fire, for anything in the store goes, long term
power outage required disposal of perishables.
Some years ago a liquor store in town had a fire. Everything had to
go. The good news, a friend of mine ran the town dump at the time.
